Hockey World Mourns the Loss of an Iconic NHL Goalie at the Age of 87

Marv Edwards played hockey for a lengthy period of time and was a member of the Leafs, Penguins, and Golden Seals. Unfortunately, this past week he passed away.

A pioneer of the sport, Marv Edwards participated out of pure enjoyment. He spent the majority of his career in the minor leagues before, at the tender age of 33, he was able to break into the NHL.

Edwards played 25 games for the Maple Leafs in 1969–1970, posting a 3.23 GAA while contributing to the team’s 10 victories.

Despite the short length of Edwards’ NHL career (61 games), his teammates adored him and were happy to have him on their squad.

Marv and his family are in our prayers. Peace be upon him.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
